As we have found our guests are treating the Nomads Den with great love and care, we have decided to not charge a security deposit.

A party is not allowed as this has too much impact on our wildlife and our neighbours. It is however fine to play music at a volume that can not cause inconvenience to our neighbours and wildlife.

Smoking is only allowed outside of the villa. Please dispose of related waste by putting it with the trash once safe to do so.
